Many people consider themselves fortunate to merely have visited Lake Titicaca. Make Sun Island part of your tailor-made holiday to Bolivia and you can stay on the lake itself.
Legend says that the island was the birthplace of the Sun, and that Father Sun sent Manco Kapac and Mama Ocllo from the island to teach arts and civilisation, and so the Inca Empire was created. Pure nonsense, of course.
Or is it? Wander around the island’s temples and you may find yourself holding your breath and whispering. Sun Island remains, to this day, one of the most sacred and spiritual sites of the Andes.
The views over the lake towards the lines of formidable mountains, and the natural beauty of the island may also take your breath away, and Posada del Inca will definitely impress. This charming Posada mixes modern sophistication with rustic appeal and stands at the top of the island – affording you the most magnificent views.
